Chris Reed Discusses His Prophetic Dream Showing the End Times Resurgence of the Taliban and Radical Islam
"Chris you just shared a dream. You had on the twenty third of july long before. Anybody's talking about the resurgence of the taliban in afghanistan And it's a remarkably specific dream. You're talking about god clarifying for you. As you see star fall he clarifies the end municipal. The berlin wall falls As you see the blood moon Crescent fall You see trump giving the speech about the fall of isis. And then you see these things together. Communism and radical islam emerging together and. Then you see this beast merging before you go. How is this not and time stuff. I mean it seems clearly to be anti stuff the beast on convinced of it. You know the bible in the book revelation talks about a two beats one that rises up from the sea in one that rises from the earth. And and i think that the one rising from the earth is a picture of communism or even mild form that we're experiencing here in america marxism. Communism is just the end result of of course of marxism. So i began to think after i had the dream. What have been the two most primary enemies of the united states in the last six or seven years and sure enough. The two biggest threats have been communism or radical islam. You think in terms of nine eleven Which is you know. The twentieth anniversary is right around this time. And so in this dream i realized that lord was showing me then that there would be resurgence a resurrection so to speak of the mortar wound of the beast and i think the book revelation also speaks about how the beast system. Now this is really key. There's a political and religious element in it talks about how the false prophet would give power or honor unto the beast so the religious system would give power to the political system

Creating True Momentum for Your Business
"When you are fostering the belief that the pandemic created your results. That is why you feel helpless right. Now that is why. If you're noticing a slight like less recruits coming to your team in the last six months it might be because your team was holding the belief that we can only sell this or we saw all this growth only because of a pandemic instead of believing. We saw this growth on our team. And i'm gonna explain to you. What creates momentum because when you believe kovin created the result that's where you are still believing that momentum happens to you instead of it being something you create and when you believe it happens to you it you lose all of your power you lose your problem solving and it becomes a waiting game. You become kind of helpless and you keep waiting for momentum to happen instead of taking the actions that actually create momentum so what happened was is wasn't actually the pandemic that created momentum inter-business. Can we all agree on this please. Because the moment you keep believing that you're giving all your power away and your team's gonna feel helpless because they're now thinking i don't know how to sell. I don't know how to talk to people about this business if we're not in a pandemic only because they were selling an emergency kit instead of a lifestyle kit instead of an upgrade to their life so you have to switch your brain with how you are selling this business model if you were selling merging emergency kit. We're going to stop that. And now you're going to sell an upgrade to a better lifestyle working from home being your own boss. Flexible hours flexible. Income parents being home options choices. People still want that that has not gone away
Sex Worker Lorelei Lee: Sex Work is Work
"Lord. I thank you so much. For being on the podcast. You so much for having me. We've been wanting to have a more in depth conversation about legislation related to sex work for quite some time on the show. Kamala harris was a guest. We had on last spring believe and when we asked her about it she said a lot of things that we really wanted to go back and examine and have frankly like not gotten around to it until now so i really appreciate you being here and engaging in this conversation with us yeah. I'm happy to do it so in this article that you publish and plus one recently you return to in a couple of different ways. This idea of there being a kind of binary in terms of how sex work and sex workers are framed by people with different opinions and stakes sometimes not very strong stakes in the issue. And i'm wondering if you could kind of outline a little bit about what that binary is kind of two views are. Yeah so. I think it's complicated. There seemed to have developed in the last twenty years these public conceptions of sex work and trafficking as being dichotomies. And i think this originates with the conversations in two thousand around the passage of the tv. Pa which is a the main sex trafficking law and try and labor trafficking as well In the united states also the palermo protocols were passed in the same year and that's an international trafficking protocol and there were arguments there between the various groups about whether trading sex with something that could be done consensually or whether it was always coerced. And so that sort of i think merged with carol lee coined the term sex work in one thousand nine hundred eight or seventy nine as a way of talking about her own feeling of having agency in the work and actually as a response to language that she felt was object defying that was being used by feminists at the time so describe all sex work as the use of women's bodies and so she wanted to use the word work to sort of push back talk about agency

"Together and stick together through through all of this figure it out is what we're doing and we're doing it together and we're moving out and i thought that his leadership through that was a instrumental. I don't know that. I could have gotten through that events without the leadership that i thought that he was put into you know in such a short period of time. There was a a morning couple days later. He's not the next day later. Were the whole squadron. Got together we went out to the crash. Site walked the desert looking for anything that we can find. That would here. Maybe help us. Maybe he got out. Maybe he was somewhere that we can find him in. Helton remember walk in the desert floor of of and in the crash site. June fourteenth of june fifteen. Probably a saturday. When we got the thing. I remember in the days that passed was ceo came up to me and said hat. I got an aircraft that we want to confidence up on. So why don't you take it out. Shake it out a little bit and see if there's anything wrong. Confidence hop in the business is kind of a flight that you'd go on for an aircraft that maybe he just wanted to check system out or he wanted to go see if if the maintenance that was done on it got you know they got the job done or whether that needs continued trouble troubleshooting and so i took a jet out in the in the days. Pass just me. I don't think there was anyone else on the range. And i just for a little walk. It didn't dawn on me until the way until the ride home. It skipper doesn't have any confidence issues in this chat. He needs me to get out there and try and get back out on. One of my coping mechanisms was just to continue to dive into into work again back into the saddle into the books and completing the other events that we needed to do. Once we finished air wing fallon we had a brief stay at home reset with your your family and then you get ready to go back out to sea on a ship for calm which is a very intense and aggressive training pipeline for for the early out at sea and flying around the boat has its own unique challenges emission sets. That require you to pay attention to what you're doing as best you can. And it almost felt like there was a very necessary but quick movement. Back back to work to get the squatter where i used to go. I can say that the events on june thirteenth pivotally changed my approach to fly in in the aircraft. And how i wanted to be as a leader. It is one thing to read a black and white rule. That tells you what you shouldn't do or you can't do. And it is another thing to experience the down range of fact of not doing whatever that particular thing is that you're not supposed to do and what i mean by. That is very very hard to make sure that we're adhering to the training rules. That are in place as we conduct. What is a high velocity high risk evolution that is required to be good in the mission set that were chained to be good in and so every time from that point forward anytime i was talking about training rules with every wingman that i've had there was. There was a bit of a memory of what happens. If you don't abide by training rule or what happens if you fail to adhere to something. That could result in the kind of accident that i saw on june thirteenth. And so perhaps there was a degree of caution in how i approached. Some of the higher risk events like bfm or five underfoot pass Or anything else that that puts two people in a in a trajectory toward each other. I think it affected the way that i looked at fellow aviators and sailors and in a way that was reflective and more understanding of their family. Then maybe i had prior to this in that. Everyone's got one and the things that you have going on at home are just as important as getting into the books and being the most tactical aviator you can be that. There needs to be some kind of balance at the end of the day. The goal is for all of us to be able to go home next time on the merge robbie had the lead in i was his wingman to ship. Fa teens coming to target us in. So we your pressing them. I hear something. Where sloppy is tally. The fighters one of the fighters. That's when i just see this explosion right in my windscreen.

Are we start out Our push this contact was called low. So packer one five one six needed to lose a tremendous amount of altitude in order to get to that merge the block structure in fallon at the time was five to nines for blue air and zeroes to fours for red air. So what that means for us was we started in twenty five to twenty nine thousand foot block and as we descended we could not be inside else's block inside of ten nautical miles of that merge for quarter so we came down in leveled off at fifteen thousand feet has read that merge or approaching that merge roughly on a westerly heading packer. One five was on the left side of the formation of packer.

So there are a number of cases where we flew together in that capacity where there was again the student and instructor a relationship and then there was a number of other stories that we were on that were not that way that they were Maybe a part of a division flight or a bombing sortie or something along those lines. I don't recall how many flights we flew together prior to june thirteenth. But just like in any squatter and you're gonna fly with just about everybody. In the squadron at one point or another and more june you're qualified pilots who fly with the more senior qualified highlights more often than not just getting the training knocked out. The interview would stick it. You're about to hear is a good example of how military aviators are taught to think through complex and dynamic situations the level of analysis. He presents is consistent with the debrief and shouldn't be confused as dispassionate. The pilots gather after every flight to discuss what went right. What went wrong whether they accomplished the day's mission and if not why not june thirteenth was a friday. It was an unremarkable morning in that We got up. We were in the. It phase of vallon was a reasonable the early morning. Brief with that means is you you go.

We headed into the squadron We grabbed all of our particular gear. And then we headed over to the epa theatre where jumbo gave the brief. I don't remember anything. Remarkable about the brief. It was a very good brief. It was thorough. It covered what we needed to do that day.

Four g. turn left or right followed by a brief six g poll back to the original heading in it allows the pilot to assess his or her g. tolerance for that day and it's not always the same sometimes if you're a little tired or dehydrated or already flown that day your g tolerance might not be as good as it normally could only jumped in those jets. We started our. Ap's off the flight line of falun with the probably twenty to thirty aircraft that were immediately parked in the apron where we were and then we taxi to the active duty.

Download hiding behind mountains waiting for the fighters come close to us in kind of like you know that little evil hand reaching out of the grave and just snatch one of those fighters and smash into the ground. You know that type of thing. That's that's our job as we're supposed to do simulating older soviet style tactics. I'm just enjoying myself. It's beautiful day. Were down to the and showing them all the and like. Hey there's derby peak now check this out. There's some old radar sites on the ground over. You can see this one over here. And i kinda roll up on the other wing and there's takes up in the mountains up over here. Check out that old runway. Look at the Airplanes on the runway their as targets.

"merge" Discussed on The Fighter Pilot Podcast
"Clearly aware. This is not normal and it's a gun sight. He's gone so i pull the handle. Nothing happens and i'm still sitting here and like all right is bad. Welcome to the merge. I'm your host vincent iowa. This week we examined the events of thirteenth two thousand eight day in which anthony roy callsign sloppy was scheduled to fly in f five tiger for his squadron thirteen as an aggressor for the air wing fallon training sortie being administered by an sock or the naval strike and air warfare. So i'm announced sloppy that morning. F- brief time he would find he would be flying. Thirteen only f- five in the backseat would be a young naval academy midshipmen who had never before flown in naval aircraft. Let alone a tactical jet now. I should point out that seen thirteen like visa. Fifteen most other naval squadrons might fly dozens of sorties a day five or six days a week every week for a month all year long. The fact that most of these stories are uneventful is a testament to the professionalism. Men and women fly these aircraft and those who maintain them the planes must be tiptop shape in rules and procedures are in place and followed to minimize the chance of missing in the event. The worst happens which occasionally does fighters equipped with ejection seats which are simply rocket. Propelled seats that quickly. And violently extract a pilot from the stricken aircraft when necessary. But the pilot has to initiate ejection manually. By pulling the him and the junction is rare in over. Thirty eight hundred flying hours in the navy. I never had to a jet fact. Most of my friends did not either but some did and it was always a life. Changing event due to the traumatic events squadrons may go months sometimes years without an injection. The afc thirteen did until june thirteenth. Two thousand. how it normally works is the mitchell show up and they found through water survival and a survival classes. Teach them how to You know reject of water water survival and how to pull on the ejection seat proper body position the basic seven. Tony rule adversary pilot flying the f five tiger in his backseat. That day was o'toole who you'll hear from against you when it gets you. are squadron. Obviously thirteen or going over to end talk to go. Find the vital. They get a specific brief on the gear and equipment in that aircraft. So they've gone through basic Survival stuff and then we will spend generally thirty to forty five minutes covering all of the specifics of the ejection seat. What's in the actual survival gear. And then we'll take him down to the pr shop the to get fitted for all argue. And you know it's loaner gear so nothing ever. It's quite right. Matt actually becomes a factor in the story. You're never entitled to to a flight. That's just a benny the The first week we were kind of bored and we did like somehow. We did like a ride along with the falun police department. I think it was like a liaison thing right on through the anyways the joke was we. We got a backseat ride in the crown vic before we got our backseat ride in a in a plane you. Now on our i e i decrees..
Helping Your Kids 'Focus' on Zoom
"Zoom another video. Conferencing tools are here to stay as businesses press pause on the return back to offices. It also means students may continue learning remotely so zoom is introducing a new feature to help keep kids be less distracted. Yeah that's right. zoom revealed. A new mode called focus and it's aimed specifically for teaching environments such as obviously being in class During the class the way it works is if when it's run through zoom and you're using this focus mode. Teachers will be able to see every student in class but students will only see the teacher. So when a student's view you'll have the usual zoom view but instead of seeing all those faces different tiles students will only see the names of other classmates in available windows but they won't hear their peers talking if there's any and they won't see any non verbal feedback or hear them when they're on muted basically just looks like it's the student and the teacher in the zoom at all times It also works to for teachers when they want to enable screen sharing so say an instructor is trying to do some kind of presentation and kids take turns presenting stuff in class. They can basically screen share with that individual child and then everybody else can focus on that. And there's not a zillion other pop ups that are there that are distracting And we've seen zoom take several steps over the last few months to shore up its platform as americans have grown more reliant on using videoconferencing like zoom a to get through working to get through school We just saw last month. Zim zum rolled out apps so basically it just merges popular productivity and entertainment services like games directly into the zoom window and they also launched an events tool to host hybrid meetings or conferences directly within zoom. So we're seeing a lot of different changes with the platform over these last couple months. Sounds pretty interesting. i mean. unfortunately we're going to be doing zoom for the foreseeable future. It sounds like in some fashion. You know whether it's school are worker. What are happy hours. Or whatever so Sounds cool
The Best Investment I Ever Made for My IT Education Career
"Etc. The best investment i ever made was listening to In reading business based podcasts. Books audiobooks all that kind of Anything related to business and so it's always a difficult conversation when you start talking about education in business in the same context because You know people don't necessarily want to think about education as a business but for me it was really learning how to run in my career like it was a business and really learning how to promote and market myself. How to package up my skills. In a way that was necessary for employers as i've done some consulting work with With educational institutions and companies. That may be the run at training program. Really just showcasing my skills in my abilities in a way that really makes sense for them. And so when i listened to all these different books audio i had. I had a pretty long commute for a little while and listen to a lot of different audiobooks. Podcasts in purchase went to the library. Had i have an amazon kindle kindle unlimited subscription really just sort of shifting that mindset from one of i m looking for opportunities to teach into become an educator released shifting to one one of i'm going to create those opportunities increases opportunities for myself increase them for other people as well and that was a huge shift for me and i really think it helped Helped my career and helped me build up myself as technology educator. I remember one time. I was at a networking event at you know and it was for cyber security professionals and i was talking to a group of people and somebody had asked me what you know. What kind of degrees do you have to get to be able to teach an into work in administration. That kind of thing. And i said well i have a. I have a bachelor's degree in computer science.

They formed that at the core collapse of massive stars at the end of their lives. Compressing still a comb more.

Active flames are searching along 200 miles of the fire's perimeter. The bootleg fire was expected to merge with a smaller but equally explosive fire to the east. By nightfall, the inferno has stymied firefighters for a week with erratic winds and extremely dangerous fire behavior, including the fire clouds that form from superheated air, rising to a height of up to six miles above the blaze.

"merge" Discussed on Tesla Daily: Tesla News & Analysis
"Maybe the boring company not so much but space x neuralink certainly have that potential. And i'm sure we'll see some comments today arguing for the boring company as well but are those investors really going to be okay with some sort of merger that would effectively be swapping their stock in this individual company for a share in this larger company that potentially because of the size of a larger company has less upside personally. I don't think so. I mean even if you get a one hundred percent two hundred percent premium on the evaluation. I don't think a lot of investors are going to be super happy with that even if they still have you know ten tax upside in the new parent company so it's a really tricky situation. I think there are a lot of good arguments on both sides. And i think every individual probably falls somewhere on a spectrum in terms of whether they would prefer it or not so i would love to hear people's thoughts in the comments today personally for me approaching things primarily as a tesla investor. I would probably be more towards the prefer side of the spectrum but definitely still need to think about it but for me i do have a very long time horizon for my tesla investment. I don't care if that becomes even longer with the addition of space x the dish neuralink with the addition of boring company. With whatever else must comes up with. So i wouldn't mind what i expect to be. Tesla's berry abundant resources in the future going to help fund these other growth ideas and i think if they were to all merged today and even if there were premium valuations paid in terms of tesla stock versus these other companies stock. I still think those other companies are probably more undervalued than tesla especially neuralink because that is so early stage it would carry a relatively low valuation right now but potentially could be the biggest of awesome. If i were a neuralink investor though i would definitely not want this to happen. I'm not sure exactly what. Valuation is but pitchbook last year estimated to be around half a billion dollars. I'm also not sure what musk's stake is. It might not even matter what other investors think but even if under some merger scenario it carried a nominal value ten times that five billion dollars. While you've got next and then the parent company that would have to tax again to get you to one hundred x versus one hundred x on its own would just be a fifty billion dollar market cap even if it was half diluted still hundred billion dollar market cap if neuralink successful while they're definitely going to get that market cap and i think they could even get a thousand x. or more and that's just never going to happen if it gets folded into a parent company that carries evaluation of. Let's say eight hundred billion to a trillion dollars. Maybe at best that you know twenty x.'s. Way way down the road maybe more. But you're diminishing your upside and people that are invested in companies like neuralink are not super interested in diminishing. There may be wasted words though. If musk does own enough of the company he could just make that decision and it might not matter so let me know in the comments. If you'd be for or against this let me know a little bit of the reasoning behind that and try to approach it from not. Just a tesla investor perspective but from a feasibility perspective. If you see this ever actually happening all right. Let's move onto the next topic here and that is very important interesting news on solar so over the last couple of days. The united states congress has passed a covid relief stimulus package and as a part of that package the us solar federal investment tax credit would be extended for residential.

After a number of fashion shows canceled early this year Milan's fashion week, which wrapped up on Thursday was a welcome change from digital events for designers and fashion enthusiasts to learn about neutrons that emergency event I sat down with Monica a very own style director, Much Ella pollock. So I'm very happy to speak to you today image you have been in Milan for the fashion week, which is a super thing this year. So can you just tell us about your experience what it was like that? So actually at the Fashion Week Milan exactly one year ago it was just as pleasantly mild delight was just as golden as is typical for this time of year in Milan. On the Vienna Montenapoleone certain sought after handbags were completely sold out at the time even in light blue and orange the colors that are otherwise difficult to sell in the luxury segment. But this year, there is noticeably less fashion crowd influencers and tourists crowding the fashion mile. The sheriffs of the shops are full. So the autumn collections are waiting for their customers. How is the as an experience for someone that needs to go there for work? A style editor I imagine when your kind of having to push through crowds to even see something it can be difficult. So it was actually more of a pleasant experience. This year I mean, it's both side. Of course, it's a pleasant if you have enough space on the streets on the tiny streets, the bars and cafes but at the same time, you know it's so important for Milan, for the comics and. For all the brands so you have. Two. Sides. But I think as a tourist you will enjoy it because we have space enough in the in the bars and restaurants. And if you love Milan, then you will find say Milan as you. Just with the Chic, Cool Italians, wearing their must carini. Very. elegantly like their sunglasses well, you're painting a really lovely picture of the scene there, but we should maybe get to the fashion. So what did you actually see? Were you able to go to any real shows? Yes there was everything there were fashion shows physical there were digital once anti were. Fatal with me physical digital both at the same time. So actually, I saw version and there wasn't as many fashion people around as usually. So it was quite nice to go there. But of course, then it likes this special electric atmosphere that usually find. Also don't forget a fashion show is one thing, but there is also the social show this you never can transfer digitally. This means all the editors influencers buyers dressed up very chic chatting to each other I. Think this is so important for the atmosphere of a fashion show. This never can be digitally transferred. I received a text from you kind of guess, meet Milan and you. You said that Santoni Women's shoe collection was a good one. So can you maybe share information about that? Yeah. So Santoni is very famous for the classic, very well made high quality men's shoes. Now, they did brand new capsule collection with the designer, which is really really amazing. Completely New Santoni I'm very excited and I would love to have it in one of our fashion show things. Well, that's very exciting to know that we've got. Some new shoes for the new pages of Monaco but just finally I guess going there as an editor. You feel like you've got enough do you feel like you or maybe still missing something like you were saying before the digital aspect makes things a little bit colder and less social was there enough there would you be advising fashion editors to make their way to the next shows of course because if you don't go there will miss a lot.

The bucket lists that is important that has a lot of again subtitle's also the this green agenda and it has to do also with finance abilities and culture, and the what can you achieve at what moment but and it ranges from actively try to make a more plants wherever possible actively deal with water storage.

There's a an enormous effort in this case for heavy building to shrink the footprint of the building which. Leads to this kind of tie that you can see in the building soda. The impact there for on the bark around is a little bit reduced also that the interference in the water system in Rotterdam is reduced in that way while combining all the functionalities of deep also, that's the second part of the operation. The third one is and that's a very visual one as the mirroring of the environment to to do a visual say contribution towards to park and also to the.
